Upgraded to windows 7 and now I dont have 1440x900 resolution available

This computer was running a 1440x900 resolution but since I upgraded to windows 7 this resolution is not visible.

The graphics card is: ATI Radeon HD4800 Series.

Windows says the driver is up to date but should I download this? http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/Pages/radeon_win7-32.aspx

OK then...

I'd suggest that you use the native resolution of 1680x1050.   If that makes the Icons, Text, etc too small, then I'd suggest that you use the font scaling feature of Win7 to suit your needs.

definately... the OEM drivers will be better

The resolution is completely dependant on the driver, so I would grab the latest Catalyst drive from ATI to ensure the best resolution.

Please download the following driver. Before installing start your computer with SAFE MODE and remove all drivers and softwares which related your grapchic card. You can do this from Control panel-Program Add remove. Restart your computer with normal start the start installation.
